        dont judge a book by it cover. judge it by it price. good books are expensive

          I thought Hard Rock closed when it left EX. It was good back in Sarinah 10 years ago.

                      Tried the new Hard Rock at PP, not very good. It is set up as a family restaurant and doesn't have the feel of what a real Hard Rock should be (a little darker, club/pub feel). Had three cocktails and the appetizer sampler platter, the cost was almost 700K. Drinks were weak and the food was just so so.

                        thanks vanuatu.. so i'll delete it from my list if i happen want to do those old crazy cool act someday. if i need to go to family resto, i have the list of appropriate resto that would be less expensive but give better ambiance
                        yeah after the chef was replaced ( starting in ex) the food quality drowning..
                        maybe the Op could give a shout to the company ..

                          Thanks for the heads up, was thinking of going to hard rock tonight. Won't bother now. My pet peeve is expensive cocktails and then they have the nerve to not put a decent measure of alcohol in it. How much are they trying to charge, 100k for a mocktail with a splash of water down vodka?

                          You should have sent them back, don't let them get away with it.

                          Stayed in a hotel in puncak once where the cocktails were over 150k. Ordered a Long Island.. Basically it was just watered down coke in a tumbler. I sent it back. Came back again, barely any difference. I asked to speak to the manager, complained about what was basically a scam. He apologised. The 3rd time lucky came back.. Was basically a tumbler half whiskey half tequila!! I was out for the count after that 1 drink.

                            I won't recommend Hard Rock Cafe either. The food is mediocre. The band, oh the band...is earsplitting bad to say it nicely. Nope. Not gonna again.

                            The best long island I have ever tasted in Jakarta is in TGI. One glass and I am merry. It helps if you tell the service personnel "make it strong, not sweet." I just found that out actually. Cocktails are ladies' favorite, and the ladies here (like most Indonesians to be honest) love sugar and they prefer it sweet to mask the alcohol taste (which beats the purpose actually...go figure).

                              Thanks Jolie for the rec and the reminder!!!. Living in jkt for 2 years with always a plan to go to TGI one day.. Never seemed to happen! My wife always went on about the beef ribs.. Need to fast for 24hrs then head in there tomorrow! Thanks for the tip re the cocktails too.

                              Back home I only drink real ale, whiskey or rum. But in asia unless in a top bar the choice is pretty limited (no cask ales naturally). So i generally drink cocktails in Indonesia when I get bored of the beer
